Artfire proceeds to benefit Free Clinics

$5 is being donated to the Red Cross International Relief Fund. For the next round, the proceeds from my Artfire shop from May 10-July 4 2010 will be donated to the National Association of Free Clinics.

The way the donations work:

The shipping cost of the item covers the actual shipping cost of the item. 100% of the price of the item purchased will be considered the donation. Exceptions are if the shipping cost is higher than the shipping charged, then the difference will be taken from the item cost and the remainder donated. Also, if shipping is overcharged, I usually refund the difference to the buyer, but for the duration of the donation time I will add it into the donation. So donations will be figured one of three ways depending on the circumstances: 100% item price, 100% item price plus leftover shipping charges, or almost all the item price after needing a bit to cover excess shipping charges.

Many charities do not take Paypal for donations. Because of this, I will be consolidating all received funds into my account and then making a donation of the accumulated amount with my credit card. Because of this, I will likely not be able to provide proof of the donation.

If you are worried about how much will actually be donated, you can donate to the National Association of Free Clinics directly.
